The only thing cooler than reality is virtual reality. According to the Spheron Website, this camera shoots an HDR image that utilizes a range of 26 f/stops, offering the absolute most intense dynamic range imaginable. Images captured by the camera's 50MP sensor are 360 degrees by 180 degrees--so we are talking about a final product that is as distorted as it is tone-mapped. The camera even features an automated post-processing engine and is capable of geotagging images.
While it is not totally clear from Ebayer Epay3's description whether or not the Nikon Fisheye is included with the auction, but we would assume it is. However, we do know for sure that it comes with the Spherocam itself, 2 batteries, 2 chargers, a pelican case, a laptop holder, a tripod and software. Also, according to the seller's description, it doesn't seem like the unit has seen too much action, less than 600 actuations total. So, if you do happen to drop 20K on this bad boy, please contact us and let us know what its like, we are actually pretty curious to see some sample images.
